It’s been a long time since I’ve sewn any clothing projects. Ever since my granddaughter was born, I’ve been wanting to create some cute outfits for her! This fun little girl’s crossover pinafore is my first project.
The Simplicity pattern that I used was my mom’s. She used it to make my niece a sundress many years ago. A friend of her’s gave it to her, and the original date on the pattern is 1976! It really is a timeless design though.
My favorite part of the dress is the back. I love the criss-cross. It is a great outfit for hot summer days, and perfect for a round of golf on the lawn!
The original pattern suggested sewing a gathered ruffle around the bottom edge of the dress, but I decided to add a knife pleated ruffle in a coordinating green fabric instead.
Stay tuned, I had so much fun making this dress, that I’m sure there will be more little girl projects in the future! Do you have a favorite little girl outfit to sew?
